Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika has claimed that she was on Tuesday blocked from attending a function in Nakuru that was presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kihika, in a post on Facebook, said she was blocked, together with Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria, from the function in which the President was to issue title deeds to locals.
According to the Senator allied to Deputy President William Ruto, they were blocked from attending the function that was held at the Rift Valley regional headquarters in Nakuru county following orders from above.
"Earlier today the area MP Hon Gikaria and I were refused entry into a PUBLIC function where the President will be issuing Title Deeds to the people of Nakuru County. We were informed that orders from above are that we cannot be allowed entry because we belong to an Unwanted Faction!," Kihika wrote.
The vocal Senator is allied to the Tangatanga team that has been drumming up support for DP Ruto's 2022 presidential bid.
Tangatanga group has been engaged in a fierce battle with the Kieleweke one that is perceived to be pro-Uhuru.
The incident came in a day that Mwangi Kiunjuri, another DP Ruto, was fired as the Agriculture CS.
